Requirements for using Open Client directory services

For you to use Open Client directory services in your application, all
of the following must be true

  • You are accessing an Adaptive Server database server
    using Open Client Client-Library (CT-Lib) 11.x or later software

  • You have the required SAP-supported directory service
    provider software and SAP-supplied directory driver properly installed
    and configured for your environment. Depending on your operating
    system platform, examples of supported security mechanisms include
    the Windows Registry and Distributed Computing Environment Cell
    Directory Services (DCE/CDS).

    For information about the directory service
    providers and operating system platforms that Sybase has tested
    with Open Client directory services, see the Open Client documentation.

  • You must be able to access a secure Adaptive Server
    server using Open Client 11.1.x or later software from outside PowerBuilder.

    To verify the connection, use a tool such as ISQL or SQL Advantage
    to make sure you can connect to the server and log in to the database
    with the same connection parameters and directory service options
    you plan to use in your PowerBuilder application.

  • You are using the ASE or SYC Adaptive Server interface
    to access the database.

  • You must use the correct syntax as required by your
    directory service provider when specifying the server name in a
    database profile or PowerBuilder application script. Different providers
    require different syntax based on their format for specifying directory
    entry names.

    For information and examples for different
    directory service providers, see “Specifying the server name
    with Open Client directory services”

  • You have set the Release DbParameter to 11 or higher
    to specify that your application should use the behavior of the
    appropriate version of the Open Client CT-Lib software.

    For instructions, see Release database parameter
    in the online Help.

  • The directory service provider and driver you are
    using must support the service requested by the DbParameter.
